ERODE TO RUIN
For a start, Bflat minor is not a note. It is a minging chord, which is certainly serious: so serious it should be a capital offence. Regarding this nonsense at the already annoying Bloody Bridge track, we have two contributions by some uninvited busybody. First, a direction stone which indicates that Slieve Donard is somewhere up here. Just in case you were looking for the Matterhorn. Second, more stones attempting but failing to bung up well-trod tracks to said Slieve Donard. Nobody, and thankfully, is paying any attention to either and is ascending this tiresome track as normal. Grumpily. The subject of mountain erosion should be regarded by all normal, intelligent people with the same suspicion, if not derision, as global warming. It is punted by wellmeaning but deluded zealots who need a busier diary and a more life-threatening environment. I have been on this hobby horse before and do not wish to retrace old steps but perhaps suffice to write (again) that it would take a dragnet of a thousand people a thousand years to put so much as a scratch on these hills and that scratch would pale to nothing against the transformation already effected by us and our passion for designer pullovers and lamb cutlets. So to all of us coming new to the Bloody Bridge track, I should encourage you to go up and down it any way you like and absolutely ignore all instructions. The way things are going in the Mournes, we shall have clippies (a pre 1970s occupation, authenticating bus tickets on board) soon anyway, checking our tickets before we put our boots on. Enjoy while you can. Maclimber, I canít get more serious than Bflat minor, so this will have to do.
